Earlier this week, the National Youth Council (NYC) forged a partnership with Redd+E, the esports arm of Reddentes Sports, to organise a series of community esports tournaments to engage young players based in Singapore.
The Stay Home Challenge Breaker series will feature three game titles, namely FIFA 20, Legends of Runeterra, and Valorant.
These tournaments will be streamed live on Cr8studiosg’s Facebook page.
“While Singapore gears towards the post-circuit breaker measures to resume activities safely, we should not let our guard down and there is also a need to continue engaging our youth purposefully. The Stay Home Challenge Breaker will give our young community players an opportunity to hone their skills and stand a chance to play against some of our local esports influencers or celebrities,” said Yip Ren Kai, Managing Director of Redd+E.
“Esports’ ever-growing popularity among youth has made it an inevitable part of youth engagement today. Through the Stay Home Challenge Breaker, we hope to gather like-minded youth digitally and encourage them to continue to stay home, avoid crowds, and socialise online as far as possible,” commented Christopher Pragasam, Assistant Chief Executive of NYC.
“More importantly, we want to remind youth the right values and behaviours, and to mitigate any negative aspects of this popular youth interest such as cyber-bullying and gaming addiction,” Mr Pragasam added.
The Stay Home Challenge Breaker tournament is scheduled to take place from:
- 28 May to 30 May – FIFA 20
- 6 June to 7 June – Legends of Runeterra
- 13 June to 14 June – Valorant
- 23 July to 26 July – Valorant / League of Legends
